two points in virginia. he had been down four or five before. the bad news for romney in these three polls is that in ohio, a state that is critical, romney strategists think they have to win florida and ohio to get to 270 electoral votes. he's still down eight percentage points, and what we've seen across these polls is that obama is increasingly competitive with romney on who would do best to handle the economy. but the fact that we've got a little bit of movement nationally and movement in florida and virginia tells me that there's still some play in this electorate, in this contest, and that's the hope for romney going into this debate tonight. >> what do you think happened in florida versus in ohio? because for a while, they were both tracking. i mean, florida by the gallup poll, he was down by nine points, romney was. what happened in florida? >> there was a poll last week that showed florida down nine for romney. i think that's too high. the campaign has begun advertising -- the romney campaign, that is, advertising more heavily in florida than they had been previousism we see

me down to 18% and 20%, which brings me down to 15. take it or leave it. >> the commodities trading business. >> i remember the reaction with some of our colleagues in the uk to the 47% remarks of romney and they looked disgusted by those remarks. it's not like the uk, it's not like you're in a position to throw stones. >> our problem in the uk is 53%. it's a bigger problem. i think the problem with that was if we'd heard romney say that a lot of that ez people es trapped by a system not creating new jobs and i'm going to create enterprise in america like we did in the 1980s to get these people out of that mess, that would have been okay. >> expressing -- >> but it didn't come across that bay. >> expressing empathy for people that have not and lifting them out of the position that they're in are two totally different things and i'm tired of hearing someone tell me how empathetic they are when they have no idea how to help those people. >> that was a clumsy statement and it did not say what nigel just said and he has admitted that himself, it was a clumsy -- >> let's not make mitt wh

contract itself was 80 and now 66. if you look at romney's, it was down at about 20, 21, and that was the move yesterday that was almost a 50% move. actually, it had already improved a little. but who knows with intrade. it's like up to $44 or, no, $3.40 for that one and for obama, it's $6 and -- i don't know. you can do 100 shares -- i don't know. more than 80,000 attendees are gathering this new york city this week for advertising week. joining us now is miles, chairman and ceo of nbc partners answer o and one of our favorites. you were born and raised in toronto. beautiful city, beautiful clean city. we've had people we listened to this week like sam zell, very unsettled about the global economy and even here domestically and whether there's another recession that could come next year. are you seeing any signs of that based on advertising? >> no. if you talk about two consecutive quarters of negative growth, we're not seeing that in the advertising business. we're seeing modest growth. so sort of 2%, 3% kind of growth. i think it's also depends on which market. financial times said tha

i am and i'm also worried if romney wins the election he's going to slow things down, and i think that's bad. >> obama or romney? >> romney. >> romney is going to slow things down. can i add to what you said, john, is it also true the on sense of job growth could make you pessimistic about the future in that you don't have the support for the recovery you would expect? i agree higher job growth is not necessarily an omen of better economic growth but in the absence, mark and michelle also, this is what? let answer not get excited. it's 114 on the payroll and say it's revised up next month, revisions hold to 150. it's still a 1.5, 2% economy. we're not making huge inroads here. >> it's still a challenging environment and i think what's encourage something we're making slow progress but by no means are we accelerating to a much different business cycle. the fundamental challenges that the economy faces are still there. you still have the fiscal cliff at the end of the year which is going to be a concern. you still have credit conditions that haven't returned to a normal environment.

, baby. >> like you're two touch donees down in the late four quart in the election. you're dreaming just as much about that. >> let's talk about the election actually. we were talking before the break, so we have the colorado poll saying romney will win. ras mmussen up two for romney. >> do not bring up rasmussen. >> and chuck todd yesterday on meet the press talking about the enthusiasm gap. >> reuters has obama up. >> so how do you read it this morning? >> romney has some momentum from the debate. i think the debate is a more powerful political force in the race than the unemployment numbers that came out. we were all talking about those on friday. but you had more than north of 60 million people watching these two guys on wednesday night and you see some momentum, democrats say the gap has narrowed in some states where obama had a lead. he's getting closer in most of the swing states. up two in rasmussen, down three in gallup. and the question is does this week continue that momentum. the vice president debate in the past has been critical for either accelerating or breaking the

, is he it. he is it. mitt romney is a good debater, the president is a good debater. there will be no knockout punch but they'll have to be solid in order to move the ball down the field. >> we saw a clip in the previous segment from fox over the weekend with ryan and the big issue was the details on the tax plan. how much more in terms of details do you expect we'll learn from romney and by the way, are we going to learn any more details in terms of what president obama's planning to do? i'll go to you, morris, with that first in. >> we don't have any details on what the challenger is going to do. governor romney said he'll create 12 million jobs and the president has laid out a vision, put a marker in the ground and does have a track record to run on if you look at what he's been able to do in four years in moving us from the worst economy, almost a depression to where we are now in a recovery moving in the right direction. the devil will be in the details and the governor just can't sit there and say i'll create 12 million new jobs, trust me. >> terry, do you come out with the deta
